NEW MODEL: It's a car! No, it's a truck! No, it doesn't fit in either category. And it's a hybrid, too. President-elect Obama will be driven to his inauguration in this new Cadillac limousine, and it's the first time that a president's limo isn't a stretched version of a current Cadillac car model. It's been customized to protect the president from terrorist attacks with run-flat tires, bulletproof glass, and a completely sealed interior to ward off a chemical attack. It's also luxurious: a 10-disc CD player and hand-stitched leather interiors, plus other accouterments.The Secret Service is not giving out all the secret diagnostic info on the limo, but did release this photo, taken along the Potomac River.  -- J.L.
